How To Stimulate Hair Growth
There are way you can stimulate continuous hair growth. You need to understand that there are different types of hair and what works for someone else’s hair might be different for yours. This article exposes the things you should do or stop to stimulate hair growth.
1. Avoid Heat
Applying heat to your hair like stretching, blow drying or any form of styling that has to do with heat is bad for the hair. It dries up the hair and makes it easily cut out because of how brittle it has become.
Massaging the scalp regularly enhances blood flow to the scalp which means nutrients contained in the blood reaches the hair faster. Using essential oils to massage the scalp provides additional benefit of growing the hair longer.
3. Castor Oil
Castor oil can be seen as the king of all oils in terms of hair growth because of how it possesses so many benefits.
It increases blood flow to the scalp, it has antibacterial properties which prevents hair infections that hinders hair growth, it moisturizes the hair and scalp and promotes growth of healthier hair.
4. Be Gentle
You need to be gentle with your hair and avoid anything that will tension your scalp, be it braids or while combing.
Take your time to properly detangle the strands before combing it. Proper detangling reduces hair loss when combing. You can wet your hair to make it easier to comb.
5. Other Methods
Consider washing your hair with warm water alone without shampoo. The warm water will help open your hair pores which makes it easier for the follicles to absorb the hair products.
Using shampoo always rips the hair of its natural oil which helps to moisturize it.
6. Quit smoking
If you want your hair to grow, it’s best you quit smoking because it damages the hair follicles, reduces blood flow to the head, restricts oxygen and nutrients to the scalp as well as increasing the risk of hair loss.
